About One Gentleman

One Gentleman's Perspective

 

 

What is a gentleman? Long ago if you asked me this question, my answer would consist of an old English professor from Oxford University, similar to the appearance of Indiana Jones. However, this was an incorrect assessment, because we do not define a gentleman by his physical appearance alone. When you enter the path of a gentleman, it is a lifestyle, not merely an appearance.

So, who am I? I am a son, uncle, brother, husband, but above all else, I am a gentleman. What exactly is my definition of a gentleman today? I believe a gentleman is one who has good character, remains chivalrous, courteous, and honorable. A gentleman maintains integrity, even when others are not in his presence.

A gentleman is one who teaches, but has no gripes when it comes to acquiring information from others. A man who believes he knows everything, in reality, he knows nothing at all. A gentleman is one who grabs hold to humility, but is also confident.

Sadly, this depiction has diminished in the popular culture, in order to follow a path a gentleman does not stand for. Today, it is far easier to give up one’s principles, all in the pursuit for fame. Because of this, my wife desired to spread my perspective: a perspective that was able to guide a boy from adolescent into manhood.

There was something in my perspective on popular culture, as well as topics considered taboo, she felt others should become aware.

I am no expert—I am merely a guy with a vision to change the thoughts of young males, who refuse to become men.

Age does not define manhood, your state of mind does.

There are elements that guide young boys onto a path, which never leads to a gentleman’s lifestyle. There are far too many measures in place, to diminish a young girl’s desire to become a lady. With this in mind, during the introduction of 2014, my amazingly beautiful and gifted wife, created this concept of One Gentleman’s Perspective.

Through my perspective, I want to initiate a world where young boys hone a more distinguished sense of style, sense of self, relationships with meaning, an understanding for finances and an overall life worth living.

Being a gentleman is not simply wearing a designer suit, driving a Maserati and smoking a cigar—it is a way of life. Whether you are old, young, male or female, follow along this journey through One Gentleman’s Perspective.

    • I am truly humbled by that comment. My wife is the reason this all started. She felt I had something others would like to read. I’ve always heard I have a different spin on life, that other males my age seem to lack. I think this is due to my appreciation for life in general and never taking a moment for granted. When you don’t take seconds for granted, you develop a level of respect for your fellow man and of course woman. I’m appreciative that others on this website enjoy the message.

    • Good day. I did actually. The original was very bland and was in dire need of fine tuning. There are other changes to come, but I too believe this one looks much better. It has a cleaner appearance. Thanks.

  4. Great blog Idea! though I am blessed to have three adult sons whom I consider gentleman and are now fathers, raising their own ‘gentlemen”…there is a great need for men like you to share your wisdom.

    As a nurse I’ve worked inside of prison’s in a few states and can sadly say that they are spilling over with young men of color. Let’s continue to educate them on real manhood and help save them from that fate!

    God Bless!

    • Thank you very much. It is a pleasure. We all have to work together to bring change. I consider children similar to the construction of a neighborhood or building. It takes multiple hands to assist in the creation. We have to do our best to rid them of negative influences, and promote the positive. Right now, they gain influence from far too many negative sources.

      I am happy to hear your sons are gentlemen and bringing up young gents in training. That is a wonderful thing. I would love to hear more about your experience inside the prison systems. Thank you very much for stopping by.

    • Thank you very much for nominating me. I am not sure why the post I sent in July is not here, but I have not been active during the month of August, so excuse this second delayed response. I do not feel I am there yet for my blog, to become nominated. I am still greatly appreciative for the nomination. It’s the second or third one thus far. Thank you

    • It is a pleasure receiving such a nice comment. The best we can do during our lifetime, is share information with others. To gain knowledge and retain as if it were a secret only you should be aware…that is a tragedy.

      I have made many mistakes, but the moment I experienced maturity and encountered my wife–I knew immediately it was time to begin sharing with the world. Once again, it is a pleasure receiving such a comment.
